Each summer, the Peace Outreach Program offers graduate recertification courses designed to introduce classroom teachers to innovative teaching strategies where the arts bring curriculum standards to life. As a standards-based instructional strategy, arts integration helps students to make meaningful connections to concepts and content in every subject, in any classroom. This technique also provides opportunities for differentiated instruction, caters to multiple intelligences, appeals to divergent learning styles, engages higher order thinking skills and allows for active, ongoing assessment of student learning.
The Peace Center’s 2013 Summer Teacher Institute will be held Monday, June 24 – Friday, June 28, 2013 with sessions beginning at 9:00 AM each day. Registration for our Summer Teacher Institute is now open! View the week’s agenda for additional information about our Institute plans.
